Dawn H. Before & After
Started Boot camp in March of 2011 just after Hatfield Athletic Club closed. I had already lost about 70 lbs from the start of my healthy lifestyle journey about a year prior to joining Boot Camp. I didn't really know what to expect, I just knew I needed to do something so I could continue exercising and also avoid gaining all the weight back. Wendy is such an incredible inspiration. She quickly earned my trust and I gained strength I didn't even know I was looking for. I started out barely squeaking out one push up, jogging 1/2 lap and using a 10 lb kettle bell. Hour by hour, day by day and week by week I could feel myself become stronger and healthier. Now, I am up to doing reps of push ups, jogging 6 miles and using a 20 lb kettle bell (maybe pushing to 25 lbs soon). It's not the push ups, jogging, or kettle bells that keep me coming back for more. What really keeps me coming back are a few things...
~ it's been the best outlet for me to relieve my stresses. For me, stressed out days = better workouts!
~ it's the feeling of accomplishment and empowerment I get every time I reach personal milestones.
~ it's a feeling of vitality (the best reason of all)
I am in control of how I treat my mind and my body and I have learned that from Boot Camp, Thanks Wendy!
Oh, and one more thing I have learned...
~ "Whether you think you can or you can't, you are right"
